Jason Reese is an experienced litigator and advisor to businesses seeking to avoid litigation. His practice is centered on the employment relationship. From discrimination litigation and workers’ compensation proceedings to employment dishonesty provisions of financial institution bonds, Jason primarily defends the interests of employers. Jason has not only successfully litigated cases to a conclusion in numerous courts and administrative agencies, but also has assisted his clients in solving problems outside of the courthouse, whether by carefully crafting policies and procedures or through prompt action before litigation is filed.
With a breadth of experience, Jason has been able to provide services to his clients in varied situations. He has represented employers in mediations from Oklahoma to Alberta and has gained victories for his clients in both the Oklahoma Supreme Court and the Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals.
